As a temporary workaround, that seems like a reasonable solution.

You can't disable fsys-support itself, but you can turn off the use of
light-weight handlers by booting the kernel with option "nolwsys".  I
wouldn't recommend that though because it's a sledgehammer and will
disable all other lightweight syscalls as well (getpid, getppid,
set_tid_address, and sigprocmask, for now).
